Thanks to John Punin, we now have an RDF parser in libwww. It is based
on Janne Saarela's SiRPAC [1] Java RDF parser and runs on top of James
Clark's Expat parser which John also wrote a libwww module for [2]. The
parser has been added as part of this XML module.

There are some sample RDF files available [3] but because our server
still sends text/plain they are not passed to the RDF parser but instead
treated as - guess what - plain text.

John also wrote two sample applications [4] showing how to use the RDF
parser and various converters presenting triples in different ways.

Get the code from CVS as usual:


and recompile as described in


This is really cool stuff!
